 Post subject: Gaps!
PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 5:05 pm 
Hi all, doing my first major diy job and fitted plasterboard in my garage attic, it's got a pitched roof and trying to cut the angles for the end has left some largish gaps (up to 20mm) between the wall and slopes ceiling, because they are at the edge there is not a lot behind them.

What's the best way of dealing with this?! Read lots of different opinions, and my current understanding is to ...

 Post subject: Ventilation and raised utility room floor
PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 4:54 pm 
The previous owners of my house built a 2.8m x 4.5m utility room off the back of the house but instead of having it at the same level as the kitchen for some reason they put in 2 steps going down :dunno: . I want to raise the floor by approximately 230mm to bring it to the same level as the kitchen.

My plan was to attach ...

Hi, can you let me know my options for increasing water pressure in a bungalow? All the water is fed from the attic.

 Post subject: New Woodstove fitted - stove pipe has lifted 15mm
PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 3:43 pm 
I recently purchased a new build property with a 4kW Broseley stove connected to the existing clay chimney. After a short first burn ( short because the curing process kept setting off the smoke alarms), it would seem that the stove pipe has risen unevenly on the stove collar leaving an 18mm gap on the right, with a slightly smaller gap on the left. Large chunks of the fire cement around the pipe/collar have fallen ...

 Post subject: Chimney Stack freshen up
PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 2:12 pm 
Hi team,
I'm after a bit of advice. I've noticed after our storms my chimney is in a bit of a sorry state and needs tarting up. Some previous work has been done and it's one of these patches that has fallen off.
What I need to know is, is there a way the stack can be re pointed and maybe rendered?
I've heard of putting 4 metal corner bits then wrap the whole stack ...

PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 12:50 pm 
Hi all,

Aldi are doing a drywall sander (in the shops last month but still available online) for £49.99 : https://www.aldi.co.uk/750w-drywall-san ... 4217992300

I need to run new cable in the kitchen for under unit lighting / downlights and will need to do some patching on the kitchen ceiling after. I want minimal disruption so don't want to empty the room and obviously want as little dust ...

 Post subject: Rads!!!!
PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2018 6:51 am 
Typical post for this time of year!!! Switched heating on as it is getting cold but rads playing up. We have an Alpha boiler (traditional) and that seems AOK. Room stat is battery powered, appears fine and is calling for heat. Rads on top floor where boiler is are warm to touch on the pipes that feed them but downstairs - stone cold. I assume I need to bleed but any advice would be great ...

 Post subject: Battle of Britain with model aircraft
PostPosted: Sun Sep 23, 2018 10:16 pm 
I watched this tonight, an excellent show where a team of German modellers and a British team recreate a Battle of Britain attack using model aircraft. I really enjoyed it, with great models and flying ability it was a terrific idea for a show. Okay there was the inevitable tick list of gender, race and disability present (I guess the makers thought the BBC would buy it) and there is an obvious gender swap called ...
